Happy President's Day John

It's President's Day, or more correctly in our world today-President's Day- Weekend a time of sales and shopping. So lest we forget here are some wise and irreverent words from two of the presidents closest to my heart (featured prominently in the musical 1776).

John Adams would be pleased that he was remembered today. He was consumed with yearning desire to be remembered in posterity as much as Ben Franklin, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington.

No man who ever held the office of president would congratulate a friend on obtaining it.

...a revolution of government is the strongest proof that can be given by a people of their virtue and good sense.

Do you want to know who you are? Don't ask. Act! Action will delineate and define you.
I predict future happiness for Americans if they can prevent the government from wasting the labors of the people under the pretense of taking care of them.
